Meet Catherine

Workforce Challenge

Catherine was working as a tutor on a prn basis before deciding to go back to school and earn her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Catherine was in her last year of school and had quit her prn position because the nursing program is so intense that working and attending school is impossible. Catherine had been living off of her student loans. Her budget remained negative, and her student loans were running out quickly.

Workforce Solution

Catherine came to the WFC seeking help/ guidance on any resources on how to continue and complete school. Our WFC staff signed her up for the WIOA program where she was assigned a case manager. WIOA assessed her vocational goals and her plans on how to succeed those goals. Catherine had a plan set out but just needed some extra help financially to complete her degree. WIOA was able to approve Catherine for a scholarship to help pay for her final year tuition.

Outcomes & Benefits

Catherine did complete her degree and earned her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing and found employment almost immediately as an RN.
